My SPF....

SPF FRIDAY!
Your SPF: Your SPF. How do you protect yourself? from the sun? from the bugs? from all things bad? alarms? sprays? from the evils of FRIDAY THE 13th!!??



I could go easy and post my sunscreen and bug spray. I...will post my safety net, though. The thing that makes everything ok when the kids are screaming...dogs are barking...and I feel like my mind is becoming mush! My Books!


I love reading. As you all are aware..I'm a whore....a Book Whore! :) So here's a sampling of my books I've devoured this summer.

  • I love my Marian Keyes books. The Walsh girls are Five fabulous and different Irish sisters. If you take these in, I suggest you start with Watermelon then go to Rachel's Holiday followed by Angels.....and so on. They're good reads, being funny, sad, quirky, and yet the plots just deepen and grab you. I can never put them down.
  • If you want a funny, sexy, great read then I suggest Susan Elizabeth Phillips. She uses supporting characters from the stories and builds them into they're own books! Love that. My two favorites "Match Me If You Can" and "Natural Born Charmer." Read in that order.
  • Hmmmm...now for some serious fluff I suggest Bergdorf Blonds and Debutant Divorcee. They're funny. Not literary greats, but fun.
  • Oh and if I can suggest one Danielle Steel book let it be Toxic Bachelors! Three single men who are best friends and they're lives are turned around by women. It's a spin on the whole female looking for love story.

There are many others, but that's all for now.

So when it's nasty out and the 13th is here and freaking me out, I'll be in my book escaping.

XOXO

A girl after my own heart! I love to read and it is THE PERFECT escape! I have piles of books piled by my bed and can't bear to part with any that I have read. LOL I even stay up very late reading after everyone else is asleep. It's my time and my thing to do! :)

Have a great weekend!

I love books too, but only the ones with sex! lol You know the ones that talk about "quivering members", "suckling pink, hard tips" and "sensuous never regions" I always laugh though at the weird wording these people come up with!

Choppzs!!!! I love the sex! I think the best sex books are the ones found in the romance aisle set in the 1800s in England or Ireland! They rock! Oh and they Rock one another!

On the topic of sex in books, I am reading On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan. It's new in hardcover, but it's about the honneymoon night for two virgins in the 1960's in Englad. It's a short read, and I'm not done yet, but so far it has me hooked.
